Re: Linux Mint 17.1 “Rebecca” Cinnamon RC released!

@davcri: Thanks for the tip. I did it but I ended up with a system that got me to the start-up screen but could not load Cinnamon, as it said. Don't know what happened there, maybe the fact that I also changed "Trusty" to "Utopic" in the source list directory broke Cinnamon. Anyway, I did a clean in...

Re: Linux Mint 17.1 “Rebecca” Cinnamon RC released!

Many thanks, Clem and team.
Those of us who are on Mint 17, can we upgrade now in order to have a look? I mean not via re-installing but on-the-spot upgrade.

Re: Cannot install k3b "You have held broken packages"

k3b installed fine on my machine as well, my friend, a few minutes ago.
Maybe the assumption that it was a server thing was right.
Thank you for the help, anyway.

Thank you for your help, my friend.
Lte me correct my previous post, I have Kernel 3.13.0.24 installed, so maybe I'll wait along with everyone else.

Re: Cannot install k3b "You have held broken packages"

Many thanks.
There seems to be a problem with Kernel 3.13.2. Should I go back to 3.13?

Re: Linux Mint 17 "Qiana" Cinnamon is out!

My friend, you have probably misinterpreted what I said and that's why I hadn't aired my view until now. If I knew how to fix isuues about anything in Linux, I would have already contributed, have no doubt about that. It's just that every time I upgraded in Ubuntu, nothing got messed up, but when I ...

Re: Linux Mint 17 "Qiana" Cinnamon is out!

Many thanks to Clem and the team for working so hard for this release. As far as I've seen it looks and feels amazing, but being a Mint fan for almost 7 years now, allow me one comment. I understand that Mint, and especially the Cinnamon edition, has taken a new direction since Petra, and I think th...

Re: Cannot install Mint 16 on Gigabyte Z87X-D3H motherboard?

Thank you for the answer, my friend.
It's an Intel i5@3.2 GHz and an NVidia GT630. The latter I have installed on my PC with no issues whatsoever.
Nevertheless, my connection is via HDMI whereas my friend's is via DVI.

Cannot install Mint 16 on Gigabyte Z87X-D3H motherboard?

Good morning, everyone, and happy new year. A friend of mine bought the Gigabyte Z87X-D3H motherboard as a result of his attempt to upgrade his old PC. After we installed Windows 8.1 due to his need for specialised tools because of his work, we tried to install Mint 16 Cinnamon on the same system, r...

Re: No preview thumbnails in video files

Many thanks, akatonomastos (ευχαριστώ, φίλε μου).
I seemed to remember that something had to be done in the Preferences dialog, but I couldn't remember the exact thing.
Many thanks to everybody for the answers.

No preview thumbnails in video files

Hi, everyone.
Does anyone know why we don't have preview thumbnails in video files like .avi or .mp4 in Nemo in Mint 16?
I only see the orange preview icon.

Many thanks.

Install latest Cinnamon (1.7.3) in LMDE

Hi, everyone. I'm running the latest LMDE (March 2013 edition). I would like to ask if I can update to the latest Cinnamon 1.7.3. I've tried sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gwendal-lebihan-dev/cinnamon-nightly and the rest of the stuff, but it didn't work, probably because it's for Ubuntu based Mint. Is...
